More Pet Food/Treat Recalls

October 17, 2012

Nature’s Recipe brand is voluntarily recalling a limited supply of Nature’s Recipe® Oven Baked Biscuits with Real Chicken, manufactured in one of its U.S. production facilities. This is being done as a precautionary measure, as the product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella can affect animals eating the products and there is risk to humans from handling contaminated pet products.dog_treat_recall

Healthy people infected with Salmonella should monitor themselves for some, or all, of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting and diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. Rarely, Salmonella can result in more serious ailments, including arterial infections, endocarditis, arthritis, muscle pain, eye irritation, and urinary tract symptoms. Consumers exhibiting these signs after having contact with this product should contact their healthcare providers.

Pets with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever, and vomiting. Some pets will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. Infected, but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact us immediately.

ALERT: Pet Food Recall

Dry dog food manufacturers are continuing to recall bags of food due to high levels of aflatoxin.

Yet another manufacturer has announced a recall of dry dog food due to higher than acceptable limits of aflatoxin, and an additional manufacturer has issued new affected lot numbers from an earlier recall.

The recalls began Dec. 7, 2011, when Cargill Animal Nutrition announced that it was removing batches of its dry dog food (River Run and Marksman) from store shelves because of elevated levels of aflatoxin.

Since then, Proctor & Gamble (Iams puppy food), Advanced Animal Nutrition (Dog Power food) and now O’Neal’s Feeders Supply (Arrow Brand dog food) have all recalled batches of their dog food within the last three weeks.

O’Neal’s Feeders Supply of DeRidder, LA, announced Dec. 13, 2011 that it has recalled an entire year’s worth of dry Arrow Brand dog food due to corn with elevated levels of aflatoxin. The recall affects food manufactured between Dec. 1, 2010 and Dec. 1, 2011.

We have recommended Royal Canin products for many years and their commitment to research and development along with quality in their manufacturing process has repeatedly offered peace of mind.  Royal Canin puts the dog and cat first and tailor makes their food in line with your pet’s real nutritional needs. While Royal Canin might not be the lowest cost food option, the quality of the product is still an exceptional value considering their commitment to quality nutrition for your pet.  Ask us about maintenance diet options with Royal Canin as well as how their special lines of food may be best suited for your pet.
